I really love that Bubblews is actually giving my poetry an audience. I had my work up on YCN for 2 years and the most any of them got was 5-6 views. Many of the pieces I’ve posted here have more than 30 in just a few days! I love that. It’s so nice to know that people are actually reading and experiencing my work.
I’m hoping that putting my work here will also lead to more sales of my poetry books as well. I’ve written 10 volumes over the years, that’s over 400 poems! I’m having a dry spell right now, but I know that there will be more poetry in the future. Even if this doesn’t increase book sales, I am really thankful to have my work being read by more people now.
Not a lot of people will even give poetry a chance. I hope that those of you out there who are reading my work will tell your friends, family and internet contacts about it and get more people into reading poetry. It’s not just for emos and Poe! Poetry is a great form of expression, and something that a lot of people can relate to. I actually recommend writing poetry to people I know who are having personal issues, because it really can help. It can also be a way for people to remember the good times in their lives, or create ones that haven’t happened yet.
So, have you read any of my books yet? (Poetry or otherwise.) Do you intend to?
